Note: I’ll be travelling again from tomorrow until Wednesday. Really busy summer. I’m bringing some of the first episodes I haven’t seen yet with me, so there may be more first impressions. I probably won’t have time and we’ll be back to reviews of last season’s shows though. Also I may go on another trip from Thursday to Sunday so… yeah… I’ll write something about Anime Expo eventually too.
Watamote is an endearing mix of depressing and hilarious. It takes loneliness, something which everyone is familiar with, to its ultimate extent and then some. We can laugh because no one can possibly be so unpopular in high school she doesn’t talk to a single person for two months. But at the same time, we can shed a tear for her because we’ve all felt a little of what she does.
I don’t know though, I actually think she’s pretty cute. Just needs to get some more sleep.
